Well, what began as an exclusive event for those able to join us at Wembley Arena on the 8th October, is being broadcast tonight at 8pm BBC One, for everyone to enjoy. I guarantee it is going to be worth your while! On the show I will be playing a short version of a piece of music I wrote while I was still a child myself and had already lost 90 percent of my hearing. In the film I perform the piece alongside Fred Frith in a dirty deserted sugar factory in Germany. Since then it has served as inspiration for countless other people who either proposed new arrangements or interpretations — the most recent ones being solo piano and another for mixed voices.

I am really glad I purchased this piece. Being a first year, undergraduate percussionist, the techniques I'm learning while working on these chorales are really beneficial to my overall playing ability. The music itself is so beautiful and well-written. I highly recommend these chorales to any medium to advanced player who wants to explore different roll techniques and sound qualities on the marimba.

A Little Prayer
Robert Childs, then principal euphonium with Black Dyke, requested Evelyn's permission to make the arrangement for his son, David. The composer obliged, and Robert presented the score and parts to his son as a seventeenth birthday present. Evelyn Glennie revealed: "When I wrote this chorale for marimba, it expressed my spiritual feelings and displayed a pleasantly relaxed dimension of the instrument. Over the years my exposure to brass bands has filled me with wonder; their musical diversity is considerable. Having composed the work when she was only 13, Evelyn continued: "As a child I would never have believed that such a short and simple piece of music, would come to grow this much.
